super tiny pixel font

For my current Atari 2600 project I may try making a digital clock using big, clunky playfield pixels. Luckily, for an old site I LOVED called Pixel Time (RIP,  here's my loving fan page) I made a font that could make words even on its absurdly limited 45x45 canvas:

(I think Nick had made an All-Caps version that I cribbed from a bit.)

Heh. I think I got my start with hyper-minimal fonts on the old Etcha-a-Sketch Animator, an early digital toy that let you make animations of 12 frames of 40x30 pixels (arranged in longer sequences)
